Academic interests

I am a new PhD student at CEES, as a part of the new project BEE-DIVERSE led by Bastiaan Star (CEES) and Markus Sydenham (NINA).

In my research, I will combine landscape ecology and functional trait analyses to locate areas important for wild bee conservation. Working interdisciplinary (together with PhD student Emma F. Eriksen), we are going to combine ecology and genome analyses of wild bees to get information on their genetic diversity to work against the 'Insect Apocalypse'.

I have a background in ecology and entomology from NMBU, and cannot wait to dive further into the great world of the wild bees.
